N'aix the Lifestealer - too much overpowered?
Well I have been thinking for this for while, and It is really annoying that this Hero has to be picked to win a game just by jungling then coming out like tarzan with 2 items and ♥♥♥♥♥♥ everyone he crosses. The most annoying thing about him is his 6 seconds magic immunity.. You ask yourself why?
Well its because:
-> He is a complete Tank counter with his Feast + Open Wound
-> can't be tanked by most tanks efficently
so you ask yourself, how to beat him? well maybe kite, maybe stunlock but then the
-> 6 Second magic immunity interferes, which makes him completly invicible, BECAUSE
-> If you focus the team, then Lifestealer rapes your whole team, if you focus Lifestealer then the enemy team rapes you. And it is such a Devils circle... And if he fails, he pulls back and Redoes everything
--------------o----------o---------------o---------------o-------
Lifestealer and Drow Ranger the only heros which are really most hardly to counter especially the reason because you need ALOT of sh*t teamwork...
But let's limit this Discussion for Naix, tell me what you think about him, if you agree or disagree.

With great power comes great responsibility. Both Naix and Drow Ranger carry great burdain when picked , teammates count on them. It also makes other team (if naix or drow is obviously picked) to think about more teamplay based build , and also i dont know for you , but for me heroes like naix and drow get boaring soon and i only play them if i get them by randoming. No game can be perfectly balanced but there are many ways to counter OP heroes when you think about it , all you need is creativity and improvisation.

ah good nyx counter? try riki, his smoke grenades does alot against him, try a escape champ or kill him with PHantom Lancer, dont know why you got such problems with heroes who are hard carry

I've played against him in a few rounds and he is indeed pretty damn powerful.

yes dude, I neither like overpowered heros, just play them really rarely.. I even did play naix so less that I am bad as ♥♥♥♥ with him :)
But still he is a hero which requires for a pub team more then expected teamplay which annoys me so alot :/

Meepo the rabbit - too much overpowered?
that will be much more funny
meepo deals enough dmg to overkill the ♥♥♥♥ enemy team 5 times... BUT
it requieres skill. so its ok.

just buy scepter...

Two items that will make Naix almost useless.
Naix depends on hitting the enemy all the time, if he cant do that he is very easy to kill. If he has to change target he is also easy to kill.
So what do we do with this information? Buy a forcestaff and use it on the hero Naix is attacking. Then he will be forced to either chase or change target. Which will waste his 6 sec Rage and therefor open for stuns. Or alternative get an Scepter, which will make you invulnerable to physical attacks, which force him to change target, and waste 6 sec Rage, hence leaving him open for stuns.

Drow on the other hand got other methods to kill but a big one is to never ever let her stand still and just attack in a teamfight. Get an invis hero to go to her from behind and force her to move.
yes man nice thoughts, i know it's with all carries and hard melee dps'er to force them to move to win against them, but the thought with force staff i never had, thank you for your advice man i will try this out, and ibtw i do not prefer scepter cause ure more vulnurable to magical dmg and it has not so high stats :) thank you again

Oh ive seen a guy totally pwn the opp team with meepo, never knew he'd be so badass in the right hands.

If the problem is him jungling and not getting harrassed, pay a visit to him in jungle with 2 or 3 of you. Using medium hp high damage heroes like ursa also works well. Just try not to let him snowball and you should be fine.

He's top pick carry atm. Maybe he'll get a minor nerf in 6.78. Or maybe he will not.
